A week in skincare

When I saw this post on Miel Café, I felt the urge to write a similar one. And this is the very first post that I write in English! You can find here my Italian version.

I’m not a skincare addict, I use a couple of products every morning to get ready and a handful of others before bed-time, but some days I just prefer to lay in bed more and I forget about my skincare. This is the reason why this week I’m keeping track of my skincare.

 

Monday

am: Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Deep Scrub Gel; Roberts Acqua di rose (Rose Water); Lancôme Dreamtone for Dark Skin Tone

pm: Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover; Garnier Skin Naturals Essential Makeup Remover Milk with Rose; Lovea Purifying Green Clay Paste; Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub; Roberts Acqua di rose (Rose Water); Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin

 

Most of these products are hard to be found online with the correct translation, mostly the Garnier Skin Natural Essential line, which seems to have disappeared! I had a lovely weekend, so I felt no need for a deep action on my skin. I currently adore Roberts Rose Water, because my oily skin remains perfectly dry for at least three hours, without any further cream or treatment! My hateful relationship with Sephora Eye Makeup Remover is finally coming to an end, though there is still some product left. This makeup eraser cannot remove mascara and actually teases my eyes. I need to finish it.

 

Tuesday

am: Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Deep Scrub Gel; Roberts Rose Water; Lancôme Dreamtone for Dark Skin Tone

pm: Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover; Garnier Skin Naturals Essential Makeup Remover Milk with Rose; Roberts Rose Water; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin

 

Almost the same routine as Monday. I’m trying so hard to finish Sephora’s Eye Makeup Remover, which claims to be the enemy of mascaras, but ends up having problems when removing a single coat of mascara, without eyeshadow, eyeliner or anything else. I was very tired yesterday and I wore very little makeup, so it was a fast routine, after all.

 

Wednesday

am: Lush Angels On Bare Skin; Matt Supreme Elixir; Nivea Visage Pure Effect Anti-Spot Extra Light Day Cream

pm: Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover; Garnier Skin Naturals Essential Makeup Remover Milk with Rose; Roberts Rose Water

 

I think I have found the perfect evening routine for the days when my skin isn’t problematic or has no spot on it, so I’m not going to change it easily (except for Sephora’s Makeup Remover, I’m sorry, but you won’t be repurchased). I finally used up the sample of Angels On Bare Skin: it works perfectly, but I can’t stand its smell, so next time I’ll make sure to buy more Let The Good Times Roll, which has the yummiest scent ever smelt.

 

Thursday

am: Nivea Visage Pure Effect Peel Soft Exfoliating Cream; Matt Supreme Elixir; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin with Tea Tree Oil drops (added by me)

pm: Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover; Garnier Skin Naturals Essential Makeup Remover Milk with Rose; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin with Tea Tree Oil drops; Just Tea Tree Oil

 

Break out day! I woke up with three awful little red spots. This is the reason why I tried so hard with Tea Tree Oil. They haven’t disappeared, but they haven’t exploded either. My room still smells like Tea Tree, but it’s fine.

 

Friday

am: Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Deep Scrub Gel; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin with Tea Tree Oil drops

pm: Roberts Rose Water; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin with Tea Tree Oil drops; Just Tea Tree Oil

 

No makeup day! My skin had the chance to breath longer than usual, but still those spots haven’t disappeared. Little hack: never put your toner into your eyes, or they’ll start burning like hell. I had to keep them close for ten minutes or so.

 

Saturday

am: Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Deep Scrub Gel; Roberts Rose Water; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin with Tea Tree Oil drops

pm: Nivea Visage Pure Effect Peel Soft Exfoliating Cream; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin; Roberts Rose Water

 

I was almost ready to put my make up on for the evening, when a series of unfortunate event took place, so that I stayed at home the whole night, with nothing on my face except for a bit of cold sweat. So, I went to bed with no need to remove my make up. I have almost defeated my little blemishes, luckily.

 

Sunday

am: Lovea Purifying Green Clay Paste; Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub; Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Deep Scrub Gel; Roberts Rose Water; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin

pm: Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover; Garnier Skin Naturals Essential Makeup Remover Milk with Rose; Roberts Rose Water; Garnier Moisture Match Combination to Oily Skin

 

It was a very relaxing day, with nothing to do, except for taking care of myself. I started with a Green Clay mask, which helped my oily skin with its absorbing virtues. I’m wondering how to party in a couple of days when Sephora’s Make Up Remover will be over: should I give a party or should I rejoice with pleasure?
